    I love everything about this photo. Including the gelato cone matching perfectly with her shoe and purse combo.

      Wow! The whole time I wrote my own comment I hadn’t noticed the gelato cone…

    Long skirts and flats are so wonderfully light and comfortable in summer. I doubt I would wear them with a crop top (too much of a statement for me, it attracts too much attention I guess), yet I do enjoy it as worn here.

    She is superb and those sandals fit perfectly with the look!

    The handkerchief hemline is not my personal taste but this woman’s look is undeniable lovely. I also usually don’t like tan and black paired, so there is another opinion I’ve had reshaped! The elegant simplicity in the lines of her shoes, bag, outfit and hair contrast well with the detail of the earrings. Fabulous.

      i think that a shadow of her skirt

      • Simone Fraser

        June 18, 2015 at 6:51 pm

        No, I didn’t confuse that; the difference between the shadow and the skirt is obvious. But it is more correct to describe it as a large scalloped hem. Tis not a handkerchief hem. Regardless of correct descriptions, the fall of the fabric is quite beautiful!

    Another breath taking image! I’m transported to an Anniversary trip to Italy…sigh ;-) Her beautiful, ballerina-like silhouette against the blurred, Italian backdrop is swoon worthy…

    I love this combination of black and cognac. Also, the low bun is the perfect hairstyle for this ensemble. Very beautiful.

      A thousand times, yes. Reminds me too of a photo you took (in Dubai?) of woman in black with a vessel in the background. Such beauty.

    Wow, she looks gorgeous, but do most people dress this beautifully during the day in Italy? Because I’m going there for the first time in a few months and really don’t want to stand out as an ugly American.

    • Brenda

      June 23, 2015 at 11:02 am

      The “Ugly American” is a ghastly ancient trope. Forget worrying about your appearance… embrace who you are!
      Even some Italians look atrocious! OK, not, a lot. But notice what is the clothes and what is the attitude. I’m envying you!

    • Ella

      June 28, 2015 at 1:30 pm

      The Ugly American is a term of affection in the book of the same name.

    Makes one wonder what kind of gelato she savoured. Pistacchio(green) or Stracciatella (white w/ black dots)? Or both… Perhaps I speak for a few mortals….its a “breath of fresh air” to see someone sans phone, “sometimes”. Great foodie/fashion shot, Scott… =) xo

    ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. It amazes me how classily these people can pull off these outfits

    With the hair style, the line of the neck and shoulders, and the drape of the fabric, all reminiscent of a statuesque Roman or Greek Goddess, this is a timeless image of a classic, yet modern, beauty.

    Well seen and captured, sir.

    Now, why am I craving gelato? Just when did they invent that stuff anyway?

    well isn’t that just one of the most beautiful things…

    like a lot of the comments — I loved everything about this, including the gelato cone instead of a cell phone or a cigarette, the flat sandals instead of scarifying high heels, the ease and fluidity of her clothes and her posture.

    Lovely to see someone so sure of herself. And alone. Eating ice cream and looking at the world through rose colored glasses.

    Such a gorgeous skirt, wish I was tall enough to use it!

  66. berenger

    June 22, 2015 at 6:23 am

    Does anyone know what the exact cut of this skirt is? It looks like some variation of a full-circle to me. What are the dips in the hem caused by, is that because it is cut in an oval shape?

    Thank you if anyone can answer this.

  67. Annie

    June 22, 2015 at 7:45 pm

    Well really…there are no words for how chic she is…

  68. phyl

    June 24, 2015 at 5:07 pm

    Gorgeous, plus she’s so lucky that she can wear flats! I think they are so chic, but I personally am unable to wear them, unless I want to be in chronic pain…. sigh….

    Elegant simplicity. I love her hair, a simple bun.. with great statement earrings. Her crop top, skirt and flat sandals are perfect to set everything off. She has the figure and posture to wear this well.

    Lovely! Does anyone know where I can buy a skirt like that? I really want one…

    I’m wondering if anyone can tell me where I can find more piures of this dress/skirt… I want it made as my wedding dress in cream but need more frontal and back images!

    I bought a pair of handmade gold sandles similar style at Peppi’s in Prositano Italy over a year ago…so comfortable…and so classy!
